Apple granted Liquidmetal patent for hollow structures in possible future product designs

“Apple has been granted what could be a major patent today for their invention relating to liquid-metal or Bulk Metallic Glasses (BMG) that could be constructed in hollow structures,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.

“The hollow parts may be formed having various hollow shapes and outer shapes,” Purcher reports. “Towards the end of Apple’s granted patent Apple points to liquid-metal of BMG as possibly being used in future products that they specifically list as being an Apple TV, TV monitor, iPad, iPod or iPhone and others.”

Purcher reports, “Apple granted patent notes that the Assignees include Apple and Crucible Intellectual Property that’s the joint venture between Apple and Liquidmetal the company.”
